In 2024, Ghana would have had a combined thirty-two years of democratic governance between the two major political parties in the fourth republic. The New Patriotic Party (NPP) like the National Democratic Congress (NDC) would have each done sixteen years of two consecutive terms of an eight-year administration under various presidents.
According to the District Chief Executive Officer in the Afigya Kwabre South District of the Ashanti Region, Hon Dr Christian Adu Poku popularly known as APC, the NPP can set the record of breaking the eight-year rule by handing over power to itself to continue the transformational agenda beyond 2024.
The 2024 election is thus as important as the 2008, where NPP and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo were surprisingly disappointed with an ‘avoidable’ defeat if the ruling NPP government and party machinery were careful with their politicking and breaking the 8 is not only a message on a flyer to share but it takes hard work and vigilant will help NPP party to break that jinx during 2024 elections , “he said”
He emphasized that, the mantra will not go uncontested and unquestioned. How prepared is the party to break the jinx of this eight year recycling syndrome of NPP and NDC. It has become so synonymous that when NPP rules for eight Years, it is the turn of NDC. No, Ghanaians should now think beyond the normal and choose a party that have their interest at heart. The baton changing spree of political power will only plunge this country into deep gullies. If indeed we are ready for real development then the party that has shown signs of true development, addressing the needs of the people, taking hard decisions that will push the country forward such is the party that should be supported.
He added that, It is incumbent upon all to work in whatever way to make sure the jinx is broken. The reason is simple, NDC assuming office after this government who has made monumental strides despite COVID-19 is absolutely suicidal. Any time NPP is in government the mess of NDC are cleared and real development is seen but strong propaganda puts NPP off their guard and NDC gets the opportunity to come back only to destroy the gains. It is time to say never again. NDC should remain in opposition. Tha back and forth of governance in the country’s political dispensation only spells for doom. This country should not be made to go back again.
Looking at the gains chalked by Nana Akuffo Addo and his government it is just prudent to maintain the NPP government in power. No, not at all, no one should fall for the propaganda of the NDC who are clearly behind certain journalists and some CSOs who are fighting tooth and nail to support the NDC get access of the seat of government for their selfish gains, “he lamented”
However, Hon APC said “Break the 8” is not only a message on a flyer to share or mere talk but also an actionable message that requires intended efforts to achieve and calls on Ghanaians to work hand in hand and support the vision of the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Adu Dankwa Akufo-Addo to build a strong and vibrant Nation.
